Mack Trucks is one of the largest manufacturers of heavy duty Class 8 trucks. Their semi-trucks are U.S. manufactured and assembled. Although the company name of Mack Trucks did not make its debut until 1922, it began as a small carriage and wagon business by the Mack brothers from Brooklyn in 1893. It wasn’t until 1900 that they made the move to motorized vehicles with the construction of a bus that could haul large groups of people. The slogan, “Built like a Mack Truck,” entered the American lexicon as early as 1957 with print ads drawn by Woodi Ishmael.
